Don't worry -  it is just for this year. We will be back on the 22nd January
to entice you with another year full of interesting challenges.
But for our final challenge it is for all those last minute
 Christmas Gifts that need TAGS.
As my children/grandchildren are older and don't live close by
I put money in their accounts so they can save up for something really special
like my grandson did and bought himself an expensive cricket bat
or maybe just pamper themselves.
I do however make a few for relatives.
So to get on with the challenge and stop blabbing -
We are looking for tags you make to put on those
all so important gifts you spent either making or buying.
Our generous sponsors for this challenge are

with 4 digi's of the Winner's Choice
the somewhat cute somewhat quirky Q K R Stampede rubber stamp company Rubber Stamps, Gold Leaf, Foil, and Glass Beads for Stampin, Scrapbooks, Card Making, and Paper Crafts
with 5 digi's of the Winner's Choice.
I selected my image from QKR Stampede
 (QKR 19603 Pine Cone Accent)
I got carried away and landed up making three tags.


I used Spellbinders Labels 18 on this tag for the back tag.
Inked with distress ink to highlight the Cuttlebug Christmas Embossing Folder.
The top tag has 3 layers coloured slightly with different coloured Distress Inks
The Digi image was coloured and added Stickles Frosted Ice on the
cones to represent Ice. Added dimentional magic to the leaves and topped with glitter.
Again I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the image.
Added an embellishment from my stash and some twine to hang it with.

What can I say about these 2 tags - hmm
Of course I used my digi from QKR
I used 2 postage tags inked up with various coloured
 distress inks some PearEx for shimmer a few stamped images
white crayon on one of the tags again to try and get a snowy effect
burlap (hessian here in Australia) behind the digi and to hang one of the tags
 MS punch Spellbinder Circles Dies
JustRite Die Christmas ribbon Glitter Gems
and on the image I used Diamond Dust but could not get
a true photo of how the cones sparkle.
I think I have covered all the goodies I used on these tags.
As you can imagine there were products spread far and wide
in my craft room to create these tags.
Hope you were inspired to make some tags for our last challenge
and look forward to seeing your work.
Don't forget to check out the other Design Team Members Blogs
on the right hand side to see their gorgeous tags too.
That is it for me for my Dragonflies Challenges for this year
and would like to thank Hilde for inviting me to be a
Designer on her Team. I have enjoyed these challenges
as it has certainly had me out of my comfort zone a few times
but in doing so has given me the chance to explore and enjoy
my craft in different ways.
I would like to say Thank You to all those that have been so kind in
leaving me lovely compliments during the year
and wish you all
A Merry and Safe Christmas
and a Happy New Year.
